Top 10 Tips and Secrets for Disney Springs in Walt Disney World

1. Secret: Theme

This one is not much a secret because the theme of Disney Springs is really revealed in every detail the Imagineers carefully planned for this destination. From the meticulously designed natural springs, to the Bottling Company signage to the bridges and more—Disney Springs is a beautiful place to visit. You can find all of the details in this Inside the Magic article, http://www.insidethemagic.net/2013/03/the-story-behind-disney-springs-imagineers-bring-natural-florida-attractions-into-modern-day-walt-disney-world/. Essentially there was a natural hot spring that was a popular tourist attraction (like many that are still around the Orlando area), and a small town grew up around it. The architecture in the various “neighborhoods” reflects eras in Florida history from the turn of the 20th century when Henry Flagler was opening up Florida represented by rustic architecture to Industrial architecture of more recent decades and even all the way back to the Spanish architecture of the earliest explorers. All of this combines to make a visually interesting and appealing area for guests. But I think it is nice to know that it has that backstory that has guided all of the decision making and ties it all together.

About Sarah Chapman

I am a long time Disney fan since I was hooked on Walt Disney World with my first trip in 1987. Since that time I’ve tried experiencing everything I can in the parks, with a total of 30 visits and counting (I’m always planning my next trip) to Walt Disney World—not to mention Disney Cruise Line and even (shhh!) Universal Orlando and Sea World. I’ve turned my Disney obsession into a profession helping others plan their magical vacations as a Dream Vacation Maker at LBAC Travel. I am a work at home mom to three wonderful boys, and each one has been properly indoctrinated with all things Disney. Walt Disney World is definitely our “Laughing Place.” Look for me on Facebook at Facebook.com/SarahLBAC for updates, discount announcements, tips, tricks and planning advice for your next vacation.
